Alabama Petrified Wood
At this past weekend's 22nd Annual Big Sur Jade Festival I encountered these two amazing specimens of petrified wood logs from Alabama of all places. I could not get from the seller of them what the geologic context of their formation was but undoubtedly it would have been sedimentary as opposed to a volcanic process. I'm ashamed to admit that I do not remember the name of the booth in which these beauts were being sold nor the name of the proprietor. It is unfortunate I could not photograph them in full sunlight as it was overcast at the time I captured these images.
